Termites are one of the most damaging types of pest you can have. They’re quietly destructive, trees, under patios, under slabs or sub floors, I wall cavities and slowly chewing their way through the integrity of a structure. It’s possible to have a very serious problem before you even begin to notice any signs. That’s why it’s so important to work with a reliable company for termite control. Melbourne is a busy and populated district. That means your neighbour’s problem could easily become your own.
There’s no need to worry when you work with Neighbourhood Pest Control. We’re here for you whether you need treatments or inspections for your residence or commercial property.
Don’t Ignore the Sawdust
When it comes to termites, you may not see signs until well into an infestation. subterranean termites can go undetected for several months because of their nesting habits. That’s why we always recommend yearly inspections. Our technicians are trained to look for things you may not recognise as signs of a problem or potential sources for infestation, such as:
- Hollow sounds when knocking on timber structures
- Clicking noises
- Sagging infrastructure or other signs of settling
- Leaking Water
- Blistering plaster board or timber
- Poor ventilation
Sometimes these things may have other causes and a technician knows how to read all the signs and trace them back to their source. It’s the only way to know for sure that you’re building is protected.
Termites May Be Living on Your Property
Another reason we recommend yearly inspections is that termites can nest in areas around your property. It’s far better to find a nest before it sends off swarms that move into your home or commercial building! If you have dry wood, rotting stumps, standing water or any old structures around your building; then you should definitely have yearly inspections. Your technician may even recommend that you remove certain things from your property to prevent infestations in the future. That’s why we like to think we offer the most comprehensive termite control in Melbourne. We’re interested in both treatment and prevention.
Stop the Problem Before it Moves Inside
There are two main types of termites common to Australia: drywood, dampwood and subterranean. all are prone to nesting around your property. While a technician will be able to give you specific advice as to your property, there are a few general rules of thumb that will help protect you from infestations that start in your yard. To start with, remove any dead or rotting wood and seal up any sources of leaking water. If you live near standing water, make sure there are no dead or dying trees near the area. Subterranean termites live underground but tunnel up to rotting woods for sustenance. Even if they have water nearby, if there’s nothing to feed on, they will move to another area.
By making sure your property isn’t an ideal environment for termites, you will prevent breakaway swarms from nesting near or in your structure.
